It’s a win “Historical”, According to him. The British Conservative Party succeeded in getting the first Member of Parliament elected in Hartlepool for more than fifty years in this Labor and Pro-Brexit stronghold, instigating a real thug on Labor and its leader, Keir Starr.
Jill Mortimer, who would succeed the outgoing elected official, who resigned due to allegations of sexual harassment, collected more than 15,000 votes, doubling the score of her Labor and Europhile rival. This victory strengthens the Conservatives after his take during the 2019 legislative elections. “Red Wall” Labor, from areas in northern England that are affected by fragmentation and adapted to Brexit.
Prior to the official results, a giant balloon representing the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, with arms and thumbs raised in victory, was placed in front of the counting office. The leader passed his first electoral test without a hitch since the Conservative tidal wave and Brexit entered into force in MLA elections.
“Let’s not forget: Johnson created Brexit, the prime minister is popular with voters who voted for ‘Brexit’ (in favor of Brexit), the Tory government has spent astronomical sums during the epidemic and campaigned for a very successful vaccination has driven” Against Kovid-19, “And the economy is turning”, Analyzed on twitter jane greenProfessor of Political Science at Oxford University. Elements that are heavily weighed down by the epidemic’s very poor record (more than 127,000 dead) and recent scandals that have exposed very close links between power and private interests.
Insult to labor
For Labor opposition leader Keir Starr, this is outrageous, and a bad omen for his goal of rebuilding Labor before the next general election in 2024. With a more moderate row than his predecessor, Jeremy Corbyn, he promised to keep the party a few months after its defeat in legislative elections to get the head of formation back on track.
“This is the most spectacular depiction that the party has so far failed to go to the voters of the working class who have voted “leave” », John Curtis, an expert on the British election, said on the BBC.
The call for change quickly arose among Labor. “Keir Starr needs to think twice about his strategy”, Tweeted MP Diane Abbott. “We are retreating in those areas where we have to win. The chief of labor should change direction immediately ”, Added his colleague Richard Bergen.
The by-election was held as part of a local and regional vote in the largest England, Scotland and Wales in nearly fifty years, postponed for a year due to an epidemic.
Suspense in Scotland
Eighty million voters were called to renew some 5,000 seats in England’s 143 local assemblies, as well as the Welsh and Scottish parliaments and 13 mayors, including the capital London. Labor Sadiq Khan, who became the first Muslim mayor of a large western capital in 2016, favors a second term against his main rival, the conservative Shaun Bailey.
In Scotland, where the regional parliament has been renewed, the future of the United Kingdom is at stake. The formation of First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, the separatist of the Scottish National Party (SNP) in power, hopes to pave the way for a new referendum of self-determination for a major victory. First results are expected on Saturday evening.
Boris Johnson strongly opposed this, believing that a similar consultation in 2014, which voted 55% in favor of living in the United Kingdom, could not happen. “One time generation”. Supporters of a new referendum reported that Brexit, with Scots 62%, was a game-changer.
The SNP may be disillusioned after months of elections with the SNP promising to rise and win a majority in favor of independence, with recent surveys predicting less spectacular victories than expected. “It’s actually played on the edge of a razor”, Accredited, Thursday, Nicola Sturgeon.
